I am planning on getting a 6 week old pug. I have been reading non-stop about different options with training. I am looking for some advice on a mix of wee wee pad and crate training. Everything I’ve read says that the dog should not eliminate in the crate. I will be at work from 8am to 5pm and will come home on my lunch to visit my pug! The person that has the litter has an extra crate. The crate seems bigger than what is recommended for a pug but she said to put the bed in back and the wee wee pad in front. If i did this, could I eventually move the wee wee pad out when it is trained enough to not be left in the crate all day?
Also, if i train the dog to use a wee wee pad, when I come home from work and take him for a walk, will he use the restroom outside?
